I Have Owned My Truck For 15 Months, And Recently I Have A Severe Vibration At Speeds Of 40-45 Mph. I Brought Into The Shop 4 Times, The Last Time Being Towed In, Because It Shook So Bad, I Was Scared To Drive It. I Replaced All Four Tires And That Didn’t Even Help. I Have Called ford On Many Atempts, To Inform Them Of This Problem, Along With Many Others I Have Had. Their Response Was, Oh Well. I Just Learned Today, That The Severe Vibration Is Common In These Trucks. If I Would Have Known This, I Would Have Never Purchased This Vehicle. It It Extremely Unsafe To Drive. I Was Also Told There Is A Weight Or Something That Can Be Installed To Help The Vibration. If This Is True, I Would Like To Know What It Is And How I Can Get It.*ak
